Explore this Application to learn more about the Climate Literacy Project and its Outputs and make use of the e-Learning Material available to enrich understanding about Climate Change. This material also includes an exciting Online Game and Quizzes.
This video introduces the acceleration in sea level rise and risks associated with it. It is a part of Changing Planet series by National Science Foundation, NBC Learn.
This introductory e-course produced by UN CC Learn contains six modules: Climate Change Science, International Legal and Policy Framework for Climate Change, Climate Change Adaptation, Climate Change Mitigation, Climate Change Finance, Planning for Climate Change.
A classroom/laboratory activity to examine and analyze squirrel species distribution and habitat data (from the USA) over time, and to interpret the possible relationship between climate change and changes in biodiversity.
A teaching module to learn about the impacts of climate change on human health, and to discuss climate adaptation and mitigation measures that would reduce these health-related risks.
A classroom/laboratory activity to learn about phenology and phenological events, and to understand the potential impacts of climate change on periodic life-cycle events in plants, specifically, on the bloom date of North American lilac shrubs.
This tool helps students learn about the link between climate change and water, and the resulting social and cultural impacts. The material includes cases studies on drought, flooding, and glacier loss in Bolivia.
|A teaching module to learn about climate refugees, specific examples of climate change-related migration, challenges in resettling climate refugees, and actions to help people displaced by climate change.|
A classroom/laboratory activity to establish the potential link between the geographic distribution of malaria and increasing temperature caused by climate change.
Teaching modules to learn about climate justice in the context of the world and in the context of British Columbia (BC).
A classroom/laboratory activity to learn about the pH of ocean water, explore the potential effects of climate change on ocean acidification, and understand the possible impacts of ocean acidification on marine organisms such as oysters.
Students will explore and analyze the relationship between the growth of oyster larvae and the chemistry of ocean water (aragonite saturation state) by plotting graphs for actual data from the Whiskey Creek Hatchery in Oregon, USA.
Use this tool to help your students find answers to:
- If ocean water became more acidic, how might it affect oyster populations?
- What are the possible impacts of climate change on the chemistry of seawater?

A set of resources to understand the link between periodic life-cycle events in plants and animals (such as flowering, leaf-out, and migration), and climate change.
This video game provides an immersive learning experience about how climate change may affect our cities and neighborhoods in the future. Players can make policy decisions and lifestyle choices to adapt to and mitigate the impact of climate change in a futuristic scenario based in a local setting.
In this game, students will make decisions and policies to improve the resilience of a city in the face of climate change-related events. The uncertainty of such events poses challenges that require students to understand and choose the best overall strategies for climate resilience.
